Prepare Today Homemade-Pumpkin French Toast Fingers

Print Friendly and PDFPrint Friendly
French Toast Fingers are another great option for my kids lunch boxes.  They are easy to eat, dip, and have a nutritional kick with the added pumpkin.  I just have to remember to make an extra loaf of bread so we can enjoy these yummy bites!

Pumpkin French Toast Fingers

30 slices whole wheat bread-cut into thirds
1/4 C butter melted
8 eggs
1/3 C sugar
1 1/3 C milk
2 t vanilla
1 t cinnamon
1/2 C canned or garden pumpkin puree
Mix butter through pumpkin in shallow dish or pie pan.  Dip bread into mixture and then cook on a griddle until golden brown on each side, around 2-3 minutes.  

I flash freeze the french toast sticks on a large cookie sheet for 30 minutes and then store in a freezer bag.  To eat just microwave a few sticks 30-45 seconds.  Serve with syrup or fruit. This makes a quick convenient breakfast for those crazy school mornings, and saves you money on all those prepackaged, processed breakfast foods.
My kids love these in their lunches with a little container of syrup for dipping.
